Hello

I k ow everyone is different but I recently started increasing my calories, increasing weight training and dropped cardio

I'm doing a PHAT split 5 days a week

So after increasing from 2300 cals to now 3200, I'm still not gaining weight

I am very tall and was just wondering if I'm getti g close to a surplus

I'm 198cm 92kg.....around 6 foot 5 and pounds I don't know...... Maybe 190???? Sound right?

Anyone around this height and weight and lean bulking?? Is 3200 close

Cheers

    Are you logging accurately? Weighing everything using a scale and selecting the right entries from the database? TDEE calculator based on the stats you've given, assuming you're 40 years old, puts you at needing 2850 calories to gain 1lb per week (based on a sedentary lifestyle). So on 3200 with your 5x exercise should be enough to see a controlled gain. I'd suggest double checking your logging and then incrementally increase your calories over the course of a number of weeks until you see a shift.

    I can relate

    Log accurately

    And ad calories slowly.... Weekly until we gain👌😏

    The Harris-Benedict Equation is the most widely used formula to find your metabolic rate, but it is no substitute for simple observation.
    Maybe this could help you reorganize your strategy.

    Sex Units Calculation
    Men Metric BMR = 66.5 + ( 13.75 × weight in kg ) + ( 5.003 × height in cm ) – ( 6.755 × age in years )
    Imperial BMR = 66 + ( 6.2 × weight in pounds ) + ( 12.7 × height in inches ) – ( 6.76 × age in years )

    202 lbs. 92*2.2.

    how long have you not gained yet?

    give it 3-4 weeks, if no increase in weight, up your cals again
